I swapped it with the coil off my TC120 which hasn't run in a long time, but had a strong spark when I checked it. Still no spark on the TC90. But I still have not checked the points.

Rocky Mtn ATV has a 1971 TC120 listed, looks like I can get points and condenser for it. Maybe the same for the TC90. I do have a TC120 parts bike, suppose I'll crack them open and see.

Upsizing Jets for E10, Suzuki TC90/120

Curious, should I upsize the jets on my old 2-strokes to account for the less potent E10?

I'm resurrecting some old Suzuki TCs, they haven't been properly ridden in many years.
